Walmart is thinking about extending their price match program to online offers including those of Amazon.
Price Matching has become a major thing especially as some stores like Target and Best Buy are matching online offers. Now Walmart is weighing to extend their price matching also to online offers for the Holidays. The Wall Street Journal reports that Walmart is testing the online price matching program right now and is thinking about going nationwide with it. The decision could mean deeper cuts into margins. On the other hand Walmart needs to improve it's image of being the retailer with the lowest prices. As with most price matching programs, Black Friday is excluded. I do not think Walmart is going there and also price matches Black Friday deals of competitors.
